Way back in 1999, Kimberlie Dykeman launched her namesake company, Kimberlie Dykeman Enterprises, with one foundational mission: to motivate, educate and activate people to pursue fulfilling, healthy lives with newfound perspective, unwavering optimism and dynamic purpose. A few years earlier she’d started off as a Certified Personal Trainer and quickly discovered her remarkable natural ability to connect with clients of every walk of life and inspire people to embrace change. As her clientele revealed a niche for working with executives and entrepreneurs, Dykeman researched, designed and began test-driving a groundbreaking science & observation-based methodology that offered solutions for the greatest challenges facing leaders when business, lifestyle, technology, wellness and sociology collide.
From this foundation, she grew into a motivational speaker, a contributing writer to numerous publications and a brand-builder, creating the SOAPBOX® Evolution product line —which includes her freshman book Pure SOAPBOX …a cleansing jolt of perspective, motivation, and humor.
Since 2003, in tandem with her coaching practice, Dykeman has built her own brand as a personality and producer in media & entertainment, appearing in and producing a collection of hundreds of TV & radio programs, web series, infomercials, and live events, plus interviewing celebs and thought leaders from around the globe —from Guy Kawasaki to Elton John.
Her savvy interpretation of the convergence of marketing, media, global sociology and technology has continued to open doors to startups and startovers wherein Dykeman has served as Marketing Director, Communications Strategist, Campaign Launch Specialist, Investor and Rainmaker.
Over the past several years, Dykeman has further propelled her unconventional coaching practice by carving out a focus on gentlemen and executing on a specialized version of her methodology to cater to male Executives, Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Athletes. In addition she recently added the title of podcast host and producer to her plate, launching the auspiciously timed channel Pure SOAPBOX: motivation for the modern man.
And if that were’t enough, Dykeman has a line of Vintage Architectural Art & Home Décor —Kimberlie on FIRE-— for larger residential, commercial, retail, and hospitality spaces.
Again, her career may resemble a puzzle of sorts, but the thread weaving through every changing phase, every cross-country move and every additional role is the unwavering importance of having a positive impact on the lives of others. Kimberlie Dykeman Enterprises will forever continue to advance in its innovation —layering business, communications and science with personal development and philanthropy.
“Never stop evolving isn’t just a catch phrase- I remind myself every day that it’s the secret to a fulfilling life and the means to becoming a better version of whatever label I fill –be it coach, business leader, friend or daughter. And so I’m committed to tapping every ounce of my education, career and worldly experiences to help whomever crosses my path do the same.” ~KD
